Beers' 34 lead Franklin past Schenevus

Jordan Beers scored a game-high 34 points and grabbed 17 rebounds to lead host Franklin to a 61-47 Tri-Valley League girls basketball victory over Schenevus on Tuesday.

“She was very consistent in every quarter,” Franklin coach Mike Dutcher said of Beers, who went 5-for-6 from the foul line in the fourth quarter.

Marisa Cawley had 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Purple Devils, who led 33-20 at halftime.

“I thought we extended the court well and were able to get some transition points tonight,” Dutcher said.

Sierra Bentley paced Schenevus with 21 points, including three three-pointers. Sarah Mellor contributed 18 points for the twice-beaten Dragons.

“We knew coming in that they were going to be prepared and organized,” Dutcher said. “I thought we did a good job of containing them.” Franklin (8-0, 6-0) will play at Richfield Springs on Friday.

Beers passed Spencer-Van Etten graduate Evie VanHouten (2,102 points), Milford graduate Shannon Weir (2,116), and Davenport graduates Samantha Meyerhoff (2,121) and Rena Goble (2,121) on Section Four’s all-time scoring list.

Beers has 2,126 points. Still ahead of her on the list are Windham graduate Erica Knolhoff (2,141), Odessa-Montour graduate Stefanie Collins (2,204), Candor grad Megan Shay (2,205) and Harpursville graduate Hannah Kimmel (2,692).

Milford 47, Morris 32

Addy Lawson scored a game-high 20 points and finished with 10 steals to lead host Milford to a Tri-Valley League victory.

Lawson’s seven first-quarter points keyed an 11-0 run by the Wildcats to start the game.

Maddy Zenir scored five points of her 12 points in the first quarter and contributed 10 rebounds. “This is a good win for us,” Milford coach Jim Weir said.

Alexis Richards and Haley Wist paced Morris (9-2) with seven points each.

The Wildcats (8-4, 5-3) will play at Edmeston on Thursday.
